Being backstage at a fashion show is so much more than just being a MakeUp artist. You are part of a family to get the show on the road. The trick is to all stick together, work with confidence, keep alert and of course ALWAYS smile and never loose focus. Its important to be on the ball as fashion shows can be a crazy rush backstage. DSC_0146 IMG_2725 IMG_2793 When it comes to fashion shows, they key thing to remember is timing is everything.  As beautiful and stunning fashion shows are from the front row, its not all glitz and glamour backstage. Backstage is where the months of hard work comes to life in a matter of hours. However, the rush is additive and the achievement you feel once the show has finished lasts for days.

IMG_9544 _MG_2424 IMG_1887 IMG_1913 IMG_1914 This amazing experience gave our fantastic Lipstick Make Up Institute team to express their artistry in more ways than one. Each day kept us all on our toes, we all loved it and left us craving for more.  We got to work with fashion designers from around the world which we can all defiantly say this is a "pinch-me" moment. You might be there to do MakeUp but do not be surprised if you get pulled by someone to help dress a model, tidy a models hair or even to maybe run and get some water and food for everyone.

The little beauties loved it and were so excited.They were not afraid at a ll. I was so proud of them. One or two had a little moment but soon got over it. There were lots of activities for them to keep them amused too. There were nail painting, games slides etc. There was also complimentary food such as burgers, hot dogs, chips. There was even deserts crepes, popcorn , candy floss and ice creams. Not only for the children but for all the parents too. The Events company #mo4network did an amazing job of organising the whole event and bringing it all together.  It was our pleasure and enjoying every single minute of them doing their Rosey cheeks.  blushes, powder and lip gloss The hair that all gorgeous thick and curly, it was amazing styling them while the kids talking and asking so much questions, as kids do. If I could do a fashion Show like this every week, I would love it. Such a pleasure to work not only with the kids but the parents too. Its so lovely to see everyone happy and pulling together. It also gives The Lipstick make Up team more experience in every genre. We want to do every event in Dubai that we can. We just love it.

Day 4 of Arab Fashion Week

Another amazing, crazy busy day at Meydan Hotel. We are the major Sponsors of Arab Fashion week for the hair, make up and nails. I am blown away by the camaraderie, support and respect everyone has for each other. These events are something special that everyone just loves to be involved in, including me. Sometimes it make you crazy as the pressure and timings are sometimes unrealistic but its fun and exciting! People respond better under pressure. What does not break us makes us stronger. We are not alone though we had great support from o#brownsugarhairsalon  #wisamnourbeautysalon #resalonsspas for taking control of all the hair and styling under pressure and restyling! #laquaswiss for supplying amazing products for skin preparation of the models. #kryolan for their amazing products and support. #kryolanofficial also #coverpagedubai for doing such an amazing job arranging the , models , guest management , after party and hostesses. _mg_2872-copy
